Franken: Coral Island

I made this franken quite a while back when I realized that I liked coral, and I liked glitter, and I did not have a coral glitter. A week or so later, Cult Nails announced Captivated, which is a coral glitter...so I guess Maria and I were seeing the same deficit. :) However, Coral Island is not a whole lot like Captivated - the glitter in it is a bit different, and there's more glitter in Captivated. I used three coats here to give Coral Island more depth and to completely eliminate VNL, but one could probably use two and be fine. To make Coral Island, I used Sephora by OPI Cover Me in Petals, OPI Hot and Spicy, clear, Love My Nails Angel Baby, Sinful Colors Pinky Glitter, Sephora by OPI Only Gold for Me, and China Glaze White Cap.

This did not show up well in pictures at all...it was rainy when I wore it, so I'm thinking I may have to take this one out on a spin when it's sunny and re-blog it. However, this is what I have for now, and at least the bottle shot is somewhat accurate.

  10. Haha. I did the same thing with her turquoise shimmer. I had made it about a month before and I posted it the day Cult Nails released her colors. Too funny!
